A Prayer At Death

Friday, March 30, 2018
I'm in the office this afternoon, working on a funeral for a friend tomorrow.

And I come to this part in the day where this is our prayer. It moves me every time I pray it, because it sums up our lives concisely.

"O Lord: support us all the day long, until the shadows lengthen and the evening comes, and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over, and our work is done. Then, in your mercy, grant us a safe lodging, and a holy rest, and peace at the last; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen."

Lord, have mercy.
Kyrie eleison.
